Need a little advice please ūüôā

What are your thoughts on Secret Harbour as a suburb to raise a 12 year old?

Looking at different areas in WA and I really like the look of Secret Harbour.

What are the employment opportunities like?  My background is Call Center Management/Business Development Management.  Would it be too far to commute to Perth?

Any advice more than welcome and thank you all in advance

We were based in Secret Harbour for our 3 week reccie. I really liked the place. It had a nice feeling and has a decent restaurant in the Whistling Kite. It's a short drive to Mandurah where we spent fair bit of time, although it's got a mixed reputation.  It'll probably take you an hour to drive to the CBD, which isn't too bad if you can work from home a couple days a week. The car parks at the train stations are rammed at peak times.

 

The properties are really cheap to buy/rent compared with the northern suburbs. Not sure about schools but you can check out the rankings here https://www.watoday.com.au/national/western-australia/wa-school-atar-ranking-2019-how-did-your-school-perform-in-2019-20200108-p53psl.html .

Aw thank you so much for the reply, much appreciated.

I am torn between Adelaide and Perth so looking into different areas, although I really like the look of Secret Harbour and the school reviews on the link you sent me are really good.

If you dont mind me asking where did you end up living?

We were supposed to move over in April but our flights were cancelled on us. We'll get there eventually!

One thing to mention - I got a completely different feel of the suburbs when driving around them to researching online. Different at night to through the day as well.
